Oh the Banshee, I could write a book on her or it or whatever it is. Growing up in Ireland, all children were petrified and if the truth be told a tiny bit attracted to the Banshee. It is said that she is a harbinger of doom, if her awful wails are heard, somebody in the house will die within the week, if she herself is seen the watcher themselves will die within the week. A frightening prospect, often as a wee boy I heard the awful screeching in the middle of the night, followed by a horrific rattling on the slates. Was the terrible wench on the roof? In the sober morning, I would be reassured by my fellow breakfasters that it was nothing more than cats screeching, but, I would counter, the sound I heard was not a cat, I knew what a cat sounded like and it did not sound like this. Cats! They would boom. Simply cats having sex! And that was supposed to settle me. Of course, it didn’t, nights would drag on with the floozy screeching her lament, I was torn with the dreadful urge to peek out the window at her but knowing the legend, I dared not do so. The thing is though, nobody ever died in my house, she wailed on and on and nobody ever kicked it, nor a neighbour, nobody ever died, we all were in full health, all in fine fettle and the best of spirits. Did our banshee not work? Or were my narky breakfasters correct, was it simply cats having sex? And if so, were they not enjoying it? I mean it sounded like they were murdering one another. Anyway, I was still of the mind that the wail was that of the banshee, for no living creature, not human nor cat could vocalise that hideous drone. I asked at school, again however I was scoffed at. ’What’s your name?’ they asked me. ‘Russell Shortt,’ I replied. ’Well there you go?’ they countered. ’What?’ I asked puzzled. ’Banshees only appear to O’Neills. O’Briens, O’Connors, O’Gradys and Kavanaghs, everybody knows that,’ they laughed. And so it seems, that the banshee belongs to a family, she is more like an eccentric great aunt than a horrific entity. Bizarrely, she was owned, I felt cheated, I mean she was stressing me out at night, but I still didn’t feel happy about the idea that she belonged to somebody else, I guess that I had kind of got used to having her around, I mean we had developed a type of relationship, not the most orthodox one I grant you but a relationship nonetheless. I began to summon the idea that I needed to get a glimpse of her, even if it meant risking my life, I needed to assure my mind that she was wailing for me. It was a dangerous train of thought, but I had heard her now over a dozen times and nobody had died so …
Hepatitis A is a highly contagious liver infection caused by the hepatitis A virus. The virus causes inflammation that affects your liver’s ability to function. You’re most likely to contract it from contaminated food or water or from close contact with someone who’s already infected. Most people who are infected mildly do not require treatment and recover completely with no permanent liver damage.There are five hepatitis viruses: A, B, C, D, and E. There are also other viruses that can cause liver inflammation, like Epstein-Barr virus and cytomegalovirus, but these viruses are not called hepatitis viruses.
The symptoms typically don’t appear until you’ve had the virus for a few weeks.
• Nausea and vomiting
• Abdominal pain or discomfort, especially in the area of your liver on your right side beneath your lower ribs
• Loss of appetite
• Low-grade fever
• Dark urine
• Muscle pain
• Yellowing of the skin and eyes (jaundice)
It is caused by infection with the virus. The virus is usually spread when a person ingests tiny amounts of contaminated fecal matter. It infects the liver cells and causes inflammation. The inflammation can damage liver function and cause other signs and symptoms of hepatitis A.
It can be transmitted in number of ways such as:
• When someone with the virus manipulates the food you eat without first carefully washing his or her hands after using the toilet.
• Drinking contaminated water
• If you eat raw shellfish from polluted water
• If a person is in close contact with a person who is infected — even if that person has no signs or symptoms
• If person has sex with someone who has the virus
• Work or travel in regions with high rates of hepatitis A
• A person who has sexual contact with other men
• Are HIV positive
• Use noninjected or injected illicit drugs
• Live with another person who has it
• Receive clotting-factor concentrates for medical condition or hemophilia
No specific treatment exists for it. Your body will clear the virus on its own. In most cases of it, the liver heals completely in a month or two with no lasting damage.
• Expect to have less energy. Many people with this infection feel tired and have less energy to carry out their daily tasks. Rest when you feel tired or when you need to. You may feel sick and tired for a few months.
• Ways to cope with nausea. Nausea can make it hard to eat. Find ways to make food more attractive. Rather than three large meals eat small snacks throughout the day.…
Pub golf – an exciting, funny and potentially brutal game of drinking. This game is also known as bar golf and very popular among pub crawls. Pub golf is no way related to the conventional golf game where there is no long fairway with the glint of green, smacking a small white dimpled ball with a lump of metal rod and sending it to the air to make it fly for a long way and run after it. Pub golf surely made of keeping in mind the conventional golf game but it’s a typical drinking game which can be enjoyed by a group of friends and can have lots of fun.

* Par 5 – A pint of cold apple.
A good range of drinks should be added including some non-alcoholic drinks like water, orange juice, lime and lemonade, etc. However which drinks to be used should be decided before the game starts.
3. Scoring is done on the basis of sips or gulps taken to finish a drink which is designated as par. The aim is to make the lowest final score to win the game.

New Delhi: National Gallery of Modern Art in collaboration with the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, presents Indian Life and Landscape by Western Artists, an exhibition of more than ninety paintings and drawings from the V&A 1790 – 1927, at National Gallery of Modern Art, Jaipur House, New Delhi from October 27, 2009 to December 6, 2009.
The exhibition is a collection from London’s Victoria and Albert Museum which shows rare and interesting watercolours, sketches, aquatints, lithographs and engravings by European artists who visited India between 18h to 20th century.
Says Prof Rajeev Lochan, Director, NGMA: “The first visual representations of India by western artists were of imaginary landscapes and settings. They were based on the written accounts of travelers to India from across Europe. It was only after professional European artists began to travel to India that they painted, for the first time, scenes based on direct observation. Their passionate interest in this new and exciting land led to the creation of a comprehensive pictorial record of India, in a visual style familiar to western audiences.”
India’s spectacular architecture, the immense natural beauty of her landscapes, and the great diversity of her people have inspired many artists world over. The exhibition is divided into four sections showcasing the works of various schools of art. The exhibit begins with a ‘Picturesque’ tour of India through dramatic pictures of splendid forts, temples, and palaces. The second section showcases works by amateur artists who were captivated by the landscape and architecture of India. Many of these amateurs were East India Company employees, who transferred to canvas their personal experiences. The third section is dedicated to the Romanticism of Indian art that depicts striking, decorative paintings entirely from the imagination. For instance, on view is a panoramic view of the Taj Mahal, paintings of busy street scenes, majestic princes, and doe-eyed nautch girls. The fourth section, based on realism, documents the social life and people engaged in various professions during that time.
SECTION 1: A PICTURESQUE TOUR OF INDIA
From the mid-eighteenth century, professional European artists began to turn to India for their inspiration. They were attracted by the opportunity to explore unfamiliar lands, to make their fortune, and to further their reputation.
The beginning of The Picturesque, a major literary and aesthetic movement in England led to a revolution in western art and promoted a particular way of observing and depicting landscapes. A typical picturesque scene included elements of roughness and irregularity, the inclusion of old ruined buildings or impressive architectural structures added variety and created an evocative atmosphere. India offered an infinite range of subjects to depict in this manner. The picturesque tradition of the 18th century helped create the order, balance and serenity of the magnificent aquatints of Indian scenery and architecture created by artists such as Thomas and William Daniell. The uncle-nephew duo traveled widely in India, painting magnificent buildings that have now crumbled to dust. Hence, these paintings are a priceless record. Ruins of …

The elusive perfect omelet. Humankind has searched for the paragon of fried egg mixture since the invention of pots and pans. You are one of the lucky ones…you have stumbled upon this article.
You see, I am the master omelet maker. I have no degree in chef-hood, nor have I slaved in any retail kitchen since my pizza oven days. But I make a mean omelet. Omelette too. Guess how you spell it depends on where you’re from. Folks travel far and wide for a serving of my tasty egg concoctions. My neighbors have been known to show up at my door on Sunday mornings with a plate in their hand.
Anyway, the secret is yours for the taking. I will give you a list of what you will need AND take you step by step through the entire process. All you have to do is apply the lessons learned here and then spread the word. Very soon, humankind will have attained perfect omelette-hood. And then, my life’s work will be finished.
Your quest for the perfect omelet will require tools and ingredients. Since I am sharing all my secrets as an omelet master, I would be remiss if I didn’t list them for you or if I left anything out.
Please gather these items first:
1) A Stove/Range…You probably knew this was important, but some folks try to cook omelets on open fires. I couldn’t begin tell you how hard it is to control your heat using an open fire and, as you will soon read, heat is one of my secrets.
2) Shedd’s Spread Country Crock Margarine…Yep. No butter. I believe that the taste of this spread is just mild enough not to overpower the taste of your omelet. Real butter has too strong of a taste.
This is my secret ingredient.
3) Eggs…Jumbo. I prefer 4 or 5 egg omelets. What can I say? I like to eat.
4) One No Stick Surface Frying Pan…If you do it my way, your omelet will be half as big as the cooking surface of the pan. Plan accordingly.
5) The stuffing…Cheese is a must. If you can’t eat cheese, well, I understand. You can actually put just about anything in an omelet. I prefer ham and cheese. Veggies work well too.
6) A spatula…must be metal and must be thin. THIN. You are trying to unstick cooking egg from metal without breaking or tearing said egg. Thick plastic doesn’t work.
7) A Bowl and a Fork…Ever mix raw eggs together in your hand? Neither have I.
Now that we have all our tools and ingredients together…let’s get cooking:
First, turn on your burner. HIgh setting right now is okay because we are going to melt the Shedds Spread Country Crock (hereafter known as SSCC) first. Get a nice big old hunk of SSCC and put in your pan. Let it melt some and then pick up your pan and swirl it around the entire cooking surface AND a little …
Robert Frank’s book titled Richistan is about the lives of the new rich and those who make up the wealth boom occurring in the United States. The book is 250 pages long and is fun to read. While we know there are millions of millionaires in the world, Frank exposes them in completely new ways, from how they hire butlers to the silly ways in which they make their fortunes. Frank gives us perspectives that we never think about when it comes to the self-made, rich population.
To start the book, the author gives the reader an idea of just how many millionaires there are in the United States; about eight million as of 2003. This number has risen drastically between 2003 and 2009. He also goes on to define the term “Richistan,” and divides his new country into three different categories based on household net worth. Lower Richistan consists of households worth $1 million to $10 million dollars. Middle Richistan consists of households worth $10 million to $100 million dollars. The elite Upper Richistanis consist of households worth $100 million to $1 billion dollars. There are only several thousand households in the Upper Richistani category.
Chapter one is titled, “Butler Boot Camp: Housetraining the New Rich.” This chapter serves as a great introduction to the secret world of the new rich households. Frank talks of butler boot camps, especially the boot camp held at the prestigious Starkey International Institute for Household Management. Here, men and women train to simply run the households of millionaires and billionaires and get paid a ridiculous amount of money to answer to the wishes and needs of the super rich. These butlers get paid anywhere from $75,000 dollars to well into six-figure territory. They must know how to please the super rich, and tasks include washing high-end cars, rolling cigars, setting up home entertainment systems, and the usual services such as cooking and babysitting.
Chapter two is titled, “The Third Wave: The Era of the Instapreneur.” There are thousands of people who are becoming instant millionaires every year. In fact, in 2005 there were about 227,000 new financial millionaires in the United States alone. Robert Frank describes in this chapter the six ways that most people acquire their wealth and points out several individuals who have instantly made millions of dollars through development and sales of several large companies. Jared Polis, for example, has developed more than a dozen companies and sold them all for more than a total of $600 million dollars.
Chapter three is titled, “Making It: Ed Bazinet, King of the Ceramic Village.” This chapter is devoted to those who have made fortunes in an unlikely manner. One person mentioned in this chapter is Sydell Miller. Ms. Miller operated a hair salon and developed a shampoo line called Matrix Essentials, which she was fortunate enough to sell to Bristol-Myers Squibb for a mere $1 billion dollars. Then there is the chapter’s title man, Ed Bazinet, who created miniature ceramic houses and …
